Patrick Bradley

Born:

Patrick Bradley - Exhale Recording artists aspire toward a time in their career when their music and the process by which it is realized become as natural as the ordained rushing of a sparkling mountain spring. Keyboardist/Composer Patrick Bradley has arrived at that rarefied space with his 5th album…Exhale (releasing January 15, 2021 via the Patricks Song Factory label). That he has reached this peak even while working with a new collaborator, producer/saxophonist/composer/multi-instrumentalist Darren Rahn (with Jeff Lorber returning to co-produce 2 of the 11 songs), is even more serendipitous
